It’s the New Year and that means that many people will be kicking off their January resolutions to get fit. But January is also a time for another kind of fitness resolution- to get into the industry and become a PT.
There are Deaf people who did it, and here’s how you can too.
Find your fitness passion
The majority of people want a career in fitness because they are passionate about fitness, and this alongside the desire to help others is the very best reason to decide to train as a PT
Make the decision
Like with a client who finally decides that enough is enough and this is the year that they are going to get fit, actually making the decision to become a PT can take time.
If you think the fitness industry could be for you, then January is a good time to explore your options.
One of the first things to investigate is how to get qualified. As a minimum you’d need the level 2 fitness instructor qualification, and the level 3 PT qualification too. Then before you work with clients, you’ll need first aid training and insurance too. There are lots of providers out there even your local college might have a course for you. One day, Deaf Gym might too!
Find your preferred setting
It’s best to try and get practical experience as soon as possible whilst you are getting qualified or once you are qualified.
There’s no doubt that becoming a PT can mean a huge change in your life. Being a PT is one of the most rewarding careers you can have. Your clients will look to you to be their personal cheerleader, their motivator and their inspiration. You’ll be doing a job that you love, and helping people to feel better about themselves, and be healthier and stronger. Who could ask for more than that?
